From this study (3 months ago):
All of this started after I finished masturbating one night two years ago. Upon climax, I was struck with an instant, excruciating pain in my rectum and scrotum areas. My penis immediately went numb and it felt as though every muscle in my perineum was seized up. I had no control, they would not unlock at all. Later on, my whole body began to go numb, except for my insides which felt like they were full of broken glass.
Beforehand, I did have slight symptoms like these, but nothing even a tiny fraction as severe. Once in a while I would have a fullness sensation in my rectum or my abdominal muscles would lock up.
I have tried anal stimulation in the past if that is of any help. I also may have an internal rectal prolapse(may or may not be related to the stimulation).
When I have a flare-up, which is frequent, I'm unable to function on any level and am bedridden. Walking sends bolts of pain from my penis, through my buttocks, and down my legs.
Every sensation except for the pain and the internal hypersensitivity is muted. My skin will be very cold and I barely register any touch. Except for my pelvic area, where I cannot tolerate being touched or examined. It is simply too sensitive and everything is painful.
My vision seems to dim during flare-ups, and there is a constant thrumming noise in my ears that impairs my hearing. At the same time, I'm also hypersensitive to noise.
I'm unable to tolerate any temperature below 80 degrees. My body does not seem to produce enough heat. Before this happened, I worked in a cold environment without trouble. Any cold air feels like acid on my skin. It is extremely unpleasant.
No doctor has been able to give me a true diagnosis despite endless testing, including an EEG, EMG, multiple MRIs, and a CT scan.
These symptoms make no sense to me, nor can any doctor I've seen give me a diagnosis. Some of it seems like a disease, and some of it seems like an injury. I just want some relief. If I have to be gutted like a fish to fix it, so be it.

Sammy, I'm a white 45 male; just wanted to agree on that Klonopin remark. When I was 21 I had my second kidney transplant which was a BAD issue all together, at any rate the hospital did not include my medications taken at home after my surgery. I went thru the worst hallucinations and jerking and seizures you could ever possibly imagine. This went on for almost 3 1/2 weeks before we decided to have me taken OUT of the hospital and relocated before they ended up taking my life. Then the whole staff of paychology including the chief of psychiatry cane in my room to see what they could do, Finallu. During one of my few moments of clarity the C.O.F after blaming me if talking "drugs" prior to my transplant listened to my word of telling him the meds I was on before being admitted. After asking when was the last time I had received my Klonopin and me not knowing, he then reviewed the charts, and didn't see me receiving this med once. He stormed out of the room of about 9 docs and came back in with two Klonopin; for the first time in almost 4 weeks and after three surgeries the first 72 hours I was hospitalized, I was sleeping like a baby, for about 49 hours with NO MORE hallucinations, or seizures or jerking! I finally got out of there without a kidney since that kidney was supposed to go to another man named the same as I in a different city! I do take Xanax and probably always will. The half life on Klonopin is much different hence one if its dangers, Nevwr Ever stop this drug cold! I've been on dialysis 25 1/2 years now and suffered from intense skin cancers, but have fought and done all I can do to live a normal as possible life, working full time except when I'm in yet another surgery, over 32 general anesthetic procedures since 1987. I was the youngest boy-man to ever be on the USA soccer team ready to play in the Korea 1988 Olympics. What a change in life.....
All the Best,
